Star Wars Lightsaber Necklace Craft

Posted May 2, 2016 By dealinanddishin

TweetIt was such a great coincidence that our Girl Scout troop meeting fell on May 4th I had to plan our meeting around it! In case you don’t know May 4th is Star Wars day. Why? “May the Fourth Be With You”! My girls LOVE crafts (and snacks)! So this meeting I came up with […]
